Origins of a Southern Mosaic

Studies of Early Carolina and Georgia

by Clarence L. Ver Steeg
Contributor: Jonathan Mercantini

Origins of a Southern Mosaic explores the distinct, individual, and separate states that made up the colonial South. This volume contains four expanded lectures delivered in 1974 by Clarence L. Ver Steeg, professor of history at Northwestern University, as part of the annual Lamar Memorial Lectures at Mercer University. These lectures offer insight into the unique political and social backgrounds of Georgia and the Carolinas and the ways in which the individual backgrounds of these states come together to form a “quilt-like mosaic,” with identifiable enclaves that contribute a special quality to the whole.
